Two Minute Drill: Failure VS Success
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is failure and success. We are launching our second technology platform literally tomorrow and I was talking to our advisor, Rob, who has been shepherding us, literally shepherding us along the way. I was talking to him yesterday and he said, with a sinister and funny laugh “Don’t forget you asked for this”!
February 1st is the day
It is so true! I asked for this! I did, and it got me thinking about failure, what happens if we fail if it doesn’t work if we don’t see the behaviors that we’re expecting with the use of this new technology?
Then it got me thinking a bit deeper, saying to myself, you know what? Failure is not finite. Success is not finite. The question I need to be asking myself along the is what am I learning? There’s only one thing that’s worse than random success, and that is a random failure. It’s not knowing why you’re being successful or not knowing why you’re not being successful.
As long as I continue to keep my mental toughness, keep my grittiness, don’t get overwhelmed by emotions, and just continue to ask myself the question, what am I learning from this? I think we’re going to be okay.
My encouragement to you is when you’re doing something tough when you’re doing something hard when you’re going through the peaks and the valleys, ask yourself, what am I learning from this?
Because when you do that and you’re increasing your knowledge and your wisdom base, you will ultimately get to the place that you want to get to.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. You guys have a great week.
Please, please, please send lots of love and luck and mojo for us. February one is the day!
I’ll talk to y’all later.
